Wellness Wednesday

Today is Friday, I know; but I was determined not to let this week pass without posting my Wellness Wednesday post. This week’s declaration is based on Nehemiah 8:10 and is: The joy of the Lord is my strength! Growing up, Larnelle Harris was my favorite singer; and his “I Choose Joy” song was my favorite song (and still is one of them). The lyrics are:

To tell the truth, this world is full of trouble
And if we live long enough it’s sure to come our way
We’ve a choice to walk in fear and trembling
Or claim the victory that’s already ours this very day

I choose joy
I’ll never let the problems keep me down
‘Cause the Lord is working all things out
For my good
I choose joy

So when I wake and stumble to the mirror
And what I see make me wish
That I could stay in bed
There’s a power deep within my being
And it commands my soul to
Praise the Lord with every breath

I choose joy
I’ll never let the problems keep me down
‘Cause the Lord is working all things out
For my good
I choose joy

So when I find myself under a load
Of circumstance and care
God wants to know
What I’m doing under there

I choose joy
I’ll never let the problems keep me down
‘Cause the Lord is working all things out
For my good

I have listened to this song so many times throughout my life; and it always reminds me that joy is choice, and it’s not based on circumstances. Whenever faced with a circumstance that does not line up with the word of YHWH/God, choose to strengthen yourself by praising the Most High anyway; and watch how it works out for your good. YHWH/God loves us SO much and He’s so good, that He set us up for victory in every situation. Therefore, it behooves us to praise Him no matter what!

This mobility exercise of the week is ankle circles. Stand on one leg, and lift the opposite one. Make circles with your big toe in one direction for ten or so repetitions; and then reverse and do it in the other direction. For a demonstration, click here. Have an EXCELLENT weekend and YHWH/God bless you!

Wellness Wednesday Tip of The Week

This week’s declaration is based on Psalm 6:9 (TPT): God hears my prayers and answers all of them.

This week’s wellness tip is to try a new piece of fruit. It is my (not-so-secret-anymore) dream to travel the world and eat fruit. I think I associate fruit with adventure. When I was a little girl, my mom always took my siblings and I to the fruit stand near where we lived in South Florida to try new fruit. I LOVED it and it is still one of my best childhood memories. I still really, Really, REALLY enjoy fruit to this very day. I’ve eaten everything from the usual apples, oranges and bananas, to tamarinds, sapodillas, lychees, quinces and everything in between. There are many foodies; but I am a self-proclaimed fruitie. I think I’m equally as fascinated with the fact that God created fruits and they’re so simple to eat, nutritious and absolutely delicious! I truly believe that He had me in mind when He was creating all of the different fruits.

If you try a new piece of fruit, let me know if you like it or not.  As always, have an excellent rest of your week and I’ll be “seeing” you!

Eternal Blessings,

Yonka
